We will always stand up for our partners. At Starbucks everyone is trained on and held accountable to the standards we’ve put in place to protect partners, customers, and the communities we serve.


The personal safety and security of our partners is our top priority, and we will take the necessary steps to ensure every partner has a safe environment in our stores.

The Right to Organize

We fully recognize our partners’ legal right to unionize and will not tolerate any retaliation against partners who are interested in a union.

The Right to be heard

Where provincial law provides for a representation vote, Starbucks will work with the Labour Board to ensure that all partners are able to vote privately and that no one will know how a partner voted unless they choose to share that information themselves.  In other provinces which provide for certification based on card signings alone, Starbucks will work to ensure that partners are free to choose without harassment or intimidation.

Privacy of Personal Information

We will take every necessary step to secure our partners’ personal and sensitive information.
